Salaries Tax - Donations to Charity

A taxpayer making donations to charity can claim tax deduction if:

  • It is a donation of money; and

  • It is for charitable purpose; and

  • It is paid  to a charitable institution or a trust of a public character that is exempt from tax under Section 88 of IRO or to the Hong Kong SAR government; and

  • The total donations in the year of assessment is not less than $100.

A taxpayer can also claim deduction for his spouse's donations.

A taxpayer cannot claim for the donation which has been allowed as a deduction in his spouse's Salaries Tax assessment or in his own Profits Tax assessment.

The maximum deduction is 35% of his net income (assessable income less deductions).

He may claim the deduction in tax return. If he forgets to do so, he may claim it by an objection when he receives the assessment. Even if he misses the objection deadline, he can still claim it by a Section 70A claim (because it is an omission --- to claim the deduction).     

The Revenue's assessing practice on charitable donations  are set out in Departmental Interpretation and Practice Note No. 37. You can read them on  their homepage: click [English], [Publications], [Departmental interpretation and Practice Note]. 

Besides, you can check whether the charity is an approved one on their homepage:  click [English], [Publications], [List of approved charities].
